For the third year in a row, Bustle’s Upstart Awards are honoring young women who are doing incredible things in the realms of business, STEM, fashion and beauty, the arts, philanthropy, and beyond.

Picking out the perfect outfit to wear to a job interview can definitely be empowering; it’s also a privilege many women don’t have. Timi Komonibo, the 28-year-old founder and chief philanthropist at Style Lottery, knows first-hand that clothing can do wonders to boost a person’s confidence. That’s why she’s made it her mission to make sure that women of all different backgrounds — whether they are domestic violence survivors, refugees, or women recovering from addiction — have access to clothing that will help them get the fresh start they’re looking for. “Clothes are the first thing a lot of people will see, and they make a lot of judgements about that whether that’s right or wrong,” Komonibo tells Bustle. “We want to empower people to transition with the right clothes.”


  • Thanks to Timi and the Students of Sustainability at Syracuse for the donation of mens’ clothes. This will be a great blessing for the recent Jobs for life graduates for their upcoming interviews and graduation ceremony. It’s so much more than just clothes. Thanks again everyone!
